Raymond James Stadium (Super Bowl LV)



HOT OF BUCCANEERS PRESS - It is time for Buccaneers fanatics to mark the calendar. Several home game themes line the 2023 schedule at Raymond James Stadium, including a look at the reimagined 70s-era "Creamsicle" uniforms the team will wear against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, October 15, in Week Six.

The Buccaneers played primarily in white and "Florida Orange" uniforms from their inaugural season in 1976 through 1996. In 1997, the team adopted a new color scheme featuring pewter and red, beginning one of the most successful stretches in the team's history. Tampa Bay will create a nostalgic Creamsicle experience on October 15, celebrating nearly 50 years of Bucs history by transforming Raymond James Stadium to Tampa Stadium, paying homage to the club's original base.

Also new on the 2023 schedule for fans will be a celebration of Rondé Barber's induction into the Hall of Fame's Class of 2023 on September 25 in Week Three against the Philadelphia Eagles. Barber, the Bucs' record-setting cornerback and the player who redefined the slot corner role by providing a blueprint, will be honored during halftime festivities. The honor arrived during Barber's sixth year of eligibility and third-straight as a finalist. He will now be enshrined in Canton for an illustrious 16-year career in the NFL. Barber became the sixth individual in franchise history to spend at least six seasons with the organization and to be selected for enshrinement in the Hall of Fame. Barber is the franchise's all-time leader in both games played (241) and games started (232). His 92-yard interception return for a touchdown against the Eagles in the 2002 NFC Championship game remains one of the most iconic moments in club history.

    DT Vita Vea ranked 11th best interior DT in new list

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will debut a revamped defensive line in 2023 after a few departures in free agency, but they’ll have one player who remains feared throughout the league at its center.

    DT Vita Vea will be returning to Tampa Bay in 2023, and despite a bit of an injury history, he remains one of the more vaunted defensive tackles in the league. Touchdown Wire’s Doug Farrar listed his top-11 interior defensive tackles in the NFL, and Vea only just made the list at No. 11..

    Save the Date! Creamsicles Return July 12

    Buccaneers creamsicle throwbacks are coming in 2023, get a first glimpse at the uniforms on July 12. The Bucs will wear Orange & White vs. the Lions on Oct. 15.

    Carlton Davis says post-Tom Brady Buccaneers will 'wreck s---' this season: NFL 'in for a rude awakening'

    For the last three seasons, the Buccaneers had one of the greatest quarterbacks -- if not the greatest -- to ever play the game leading our offense. Now that Tom Brady retired, the Bucs will need to make many adjustments, but even without a future of Hall of Famer behind center, they're confident in who they have on the roster.

    Bucs cornerback Carlton Davis is one player who is not focused on the loss of TB12. Instead, Davis is taking an aggressive approach to the 2023 season.

    "We're about to do it to 'em," Davis said, via Go Long. "Anybody who feels we've lost Tom -- and lost something -- is going to be in for a rude awakening. A rude awakening. Tom was a great addition for us, but obviously it's a team sport. Obviously, you need components to be successful. We still have those components. And I'm only getting better."

    Davis clearly has high confidence in himself and his team, and says the "rude awakening" is directed to the rest of the NFL. The 26-year-old said the team has a destroyer-like attitude, predicting many big plays from the defense. "

    2023 NFL Draft BuccaneersFan.com Las Vegas
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl 58 odds: +5000

    It’s never too early for Buccaneers Fans dreams of Super Bowl 58 in Las Vegas, and history has proved on many occasions we should expect the unexpected as we sail to the big game.

    The 2022 season left us with a few Barnacles, as our defense was caught wadding in a rip-tide supported by an average offense at best. Despite limiting our opponents to 21.6 PPG, Tampa lost its sail for any efficiency in running the ball, finishing dead last in the league with an average of 75.6 yards per game on the ground.

    Despite a season ending flutter, the Buccaneers dominated our division, finishing first in the NFC South with an 8-9 record and the fourth seed in the NFC. In the postseason it was the land-loving Cowboys, who eliminated our BUCS 31-14 in the wild-card round.

    Football is as much a mental game, as physical, Tom Brady’s divorce fluttered his final year as he entered retirement, it's clear the BUCS MUST find a viable solution over center this season, either as priority number one or two alongside replacing Todd Bowles, who was hired as head coach. Once the quarterback solution is anchored, raising the offensive line mast and improving the league-worst running game should be key priorities to address as we plot the new season. Bolstering our defensive line would go a long way to improve our pass rush as well.
